It is my neighbors plant that she allows me to admire. She believes it to be around 30 years old, but she was unsure of how old it was when she got it--she says it was around 18". As far as the health, we usually have the perfect climate for them here. Long dry summers, mild winters, high humidity, and sandy soil.

Thanks for the info. That is the biggest one I've ever seen! Your climate is perfect for it. Years ago I managed to get one to about 18" as a houseplant.

It is definitely very large. There are some really large ones on the island here as well.

I've been planning to make a trip there eventually. I'll have to look for them when I do.
